A great addition to your raku pottery collection. Or if you want to send this jar as a gift , we will wrap it in colorful tissue and tie a ribbon around it. We are also happy to include a personal message from you.
This piece of art pottery is about 12.5 inches tall and about 8 inches in diameter.
We have had customers ask if our jars can be used as an urn. Yes, they can and many people do use them as urns.
This jar holds 275 cubic inches.
This jar was thrown on the wheel. The lid was thrown then hand formed elements were added.
After bisque firing, the body of the jar was glazed with a vibrant red orange crackle glaze. Steve makes this glaze. The lid and the foot were left unglazed.
The jar is then placed in a specially built kiln and heated until the glaze has melted. Still glowing with intense heat,it is removed from the kiln. This thermal shock causes the glaze to crackle.
Then the jar is placed into a container of sawdust. The sawdust ignites and produces a smoky atmosphere where carbon is absorbed into the unglazed clay and the crackled glaze.
Each piece has its own distinct crackle pattern and is unique in the way the carbon darkens the clay. There will never be another jar exactly like this one.
